For the past two years I have not wanted to go to church. Something was missing in my religious experience. As a Catholic I did not question religious doctrine; went to church every Sunday and every Holy day but felt "empty". This book "the Biology of Transcendence" has put things in perspective for me. It acknowledges and validates my quest towards transcendence. The reasons societies seek Religious shelter, the guilt and shame imposed upon you by loving but unsuspecting parents are tied into t [...]
The human species is evolving toward a higher consciousness. Neurophysiological studies are demonstrating the wisdom of the mystics. All we need to fear is the lack of courage to grow and change, to recognize our own Divinity and to put aside the practice of projecting the Divine onto some external Authority.
Enculturation is the process of External Ethics.Socialization is the process of Inner Way.
This pseudoscience is so weak that it is embarrassing to read. It is not devoid of good points, in particular the importance of investing our time in children in order for them to develop well. Children are really undervalued, so the book is commendable on that. Also the long duration of human maturation - our brains really are not finished growing until sometime in our twenties (not that most people use them fully even then). But much of its science is misinterpreted, and pure myth is taken as [...]
This visionary book speculates upon the potential of humanity to evolve at a much accelerated pace with expanded compassion, tolerance, and altruism as suggested by Pierce's analysis of the true Jesus Christ, as well as Bhudda, Ghandi, and other highly-evolved prophets and leaders. Pierce beautifully weaves this all into an understanding of Pre-and perinatal psychology, emphasizing the need for a truly caring, attentive and mindful conception, pregnancy, birth and infancy of all newborns, which [...]
It gets you thinking--and for me that is one of the most important values in a book. I think we can evolve or become extinct. I value his ideas and the push they give me to examine some of my own.
Utterly holistic insights and perspectives based on a lifetime of global travel, firsthand interviews with a wide range of spiritual leaders, research and teaching. Seminal stuff abounds here, with many critical interpretations of cultural trajectories and recommendations.The Heart Math Institute is a medically and scientifically based research center that very carefully measures how our brain waves, heart rhythms and other inner biometrics.
In this book, Pearce presented the mutual influence between culture, religion, biology, mind and consciousness. I found it very interesting, in particular the way in which our brain extends to the heart and the influence of electromagnetic fields. I agree with the mutual influence between mind-body-biology-society. But mixing christianity and mystical topics can be a bit controversial.
"The Biology of Transcendence" is one of the books in the secondary bibliography of my free ebook on comparative mysticism. "The greatest achievement in life" at suprarational/gail2012.pdf has been reviewed on .
"Fear of death locks our mind into survival strategies that counter our discovery of possibilities other than death."Ken Wilber says this about his own books: "Read them, but also go out there and act upon that knowledge." Same goes for this one. Also, both Ken and Joseph seem to value the prophetic work of William Blake. I find such bits particularly rewarding. I strongly recommend "Biology of Transcendence" to anyone who wants to learn a lot about themselves and possibly why a transcendence of [...]
Excellent and fascinating. Sometimes depressing in terms of how profoundly negative early childhood experience leads to violence later in life. But also encouraging in how our brains and our spirits are intimately connected.
The book would be fine if it limited itself to Steiner and the author's own mystical experience and utopian fantasies. But bringing weak science like Bruce Lipton into it and reinterpreting solid science like Allen Schore is too much for me. I cannot really recommend it to anybody who already hasn't read quite a bit, but they won't need it nor find it interesting.
Can't find words to describe this great book, it expanded my consciousness and created a new way of looking at things. It's explanation of Heart Math was new and fresh, which helped me with my mediation practice.
Good points, but too woo woo.
This book has enlightened perception of the ways of evolution within the brain of the human being. Transcend into a clear field of spiritual awakening.
I'd like to read this book as a friend recommended it, so its on a must read before the year is out list!
Excellent. Thought provoking ideas. Some parts were a bit dry but worth wading through.
Interesting - not finished with this one yet!
brilliant, but kind of rough to get through. i wouldn't suggest it for a "light read"
